even further into record territory. >>> the treasury department says the country's budget deficit dropped to its lowest level in six years, during 2013. the federal deficit was $680 billion in the last fiscal year. that's down from about $1.1 trillion the previous year. cnn global economic analyst, managing editor of "time" magazine. so it's a dramatic -- about 15% drop in the deficit, which is still high, but a lot less than it used to be. what happened? >> well, in short, the country's growing again. we have been in a recovery for the last year. hasn't felt like one to a lot of people, but growing your way out of a deficit is always the best way to do it. that happened during the boom period of the clinton years, what a lot of people have been hoping would happen once we got past the fiscal headwinds in washington, that we get back on a growth path. what's interesting, though, there is actually a cbo study out looking at the longer term impact on budget deficits. and we have to keep growing faster in order to keep it down. we go back to a 2% economy, those numbers will tick righ
speaker john boehner, and if you look at the deficit, it's been cut by more than half in 2009, the fastest deficit decline over a sustained period since world war ii, so would you acknowledge some progress is being made? >> yeah, i think it's a great point. if you look at the numbers, looks like quite a bit of progress has been made and the deficit has come down very quickly. that, of course, comes after a large rampup in the deficit where it grew by 800% before those four years, and i think more troubling is if you look at the nation's debt, where our debt levels are twice as large as they've been historically and are at historic highs and that's where the trouble is. while we've done a lot of deficit reduction, we've done it in the wrong way. we've focused on, i think, inadvertently through congress not being able to pick our policies on short-term measures that came out of the budget, which isn't where the problem is. what we should be doing is trying to replace those savings that came from the sequester that aren't as useful or long-term with more permanent and structural changes to en

the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is
